Nov 22 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

November 8th-30th, “A Tuna Christmas” by Ed Howard, Jaston Williams, and Joe Sears will be on stage at Island ETC. This fun “tuna” adventure is a holiday classic. 

In this hilarious sequel to “Greater Tuna,” it’s Christmas in the third-smallest town in Texas. Radio station OKKK news personalities Thurston Wheelis and Arles Struvie report on the various Yuletide activities, including the hot competition in the annual lawn-display contest and that Joe Bob Lipsey’s production of ‘A Christmas Carol’ is jeopardized by unpaid electric bills. “A Tuna Christmas” is a total delight for audiences of all ages.

Performances begin at 8pm except for Sunday matinees start at 2:30pm. Sunday matinees will be on November 10th and November 17th.

Tickets are $30 for adults and $25 for students and senior citizens (55+). Tickets are available at islandetc.org.

  • May 15th-30th: “The Last of the Thorntons” by Horton Foote
Vienna Boys Choir at The Grand @ The Grand 1894 Opera House
Nov 22 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Boys have been singing at Vienna’s Imperial Chapel since 1296. Joseph Haydn, Michael Haydn, and Franz Schubert were themselves choir boys. Today, there are 100 choristers between the ages of nine and fourteen, divided into four touring groups. The Choir’s repertoire includes everything from medieval to contemporary and experimental music. Motets and lieder for boys’ choirs form the core of the touring repertoire, as do the Choir’s own arrangements of quintessentially Viennese music like waltzes and polkas. This will be a delightful evening for all ages! This project is sponsored in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts and Texas Commission on the Arts. Tickets are $25-$75.

Jaston Williams: “BLOOD & Holly – A West Texas Family Christmas” at The Grand @ The Grand 1894 Opera House
Nov 23 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

In this latest, hysterical offering from our friend Jaston Williams, “Blood” in the title refers to his family blood-line and all that means to his world. Jaston describes Christmastime during his childhood as a skittish mishmash of life on “Rebecca’s Sunnybrook Farm” and frequent side excursions into Franco, Spain. Hear about the life-damaging Santa Claus experience, the Christmas tree that caused the cat to have a nervous collapse and what it was like every Christmas to be one of four people in the room with the same first name. You’ll also spend time with the fictional Hugger Family, whose Christmas wish list includes new teeth for the old folks, knives for the kiddies, and a better criminal attorney for Darlette. For those who need to know, find out why it’s a bad idea to flock a Christmas tree inside the house. Tickets are $30-$72.
